Ollendorff plan; the second part is devoted to familiar conversations in German, models of letters, forms of business, and selections from German literature; the third part is a compend of German grammar; the fourth part gives tables of German moneys, weights and measures, abbreviations, proper names, and a vocabulary. This statement of the plan of the book gives but little idea of its fulness, or its philosophical method. It is in every respect a superior work. We commend it to all interested in the study of the German language. The Harpers may safely challenge the publishers of German text-books to show a better specimen of typography.
